Singer covers Gorillaz' 'Clint Eastwood' on the MTS

Among of the first things one learns when Google-searching Lee MacDougall is that he's acquainted with the Twilight heartthrob Robert Pattinson. This isn't the first time A Trolley Show performer has had a connection to the to those chaste vampires: X Ambassadors also provided a song for the movie's soundtrack. 

On this episode of A Trolley Show, MacDougal steps out of Pattinson's shadow and performs a fun cover of Gorillaz's 2001 breakout hit "Clint Eastwood." But what's impressive his ability to slide the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme—a song memorized by anyone between 25 and 30 years old—into the verse without missing a beat.
